Bad extrusion and Bowden tube out

Recommended Posts

Posted · Bad extrusion and Bowden tube out

Hello everybody
Does anyone have any suggestions to fix this problem?

Printing starts well. After a few minutes....
Extruder 1 (PETG) layer appears discontinuous.

The bouden tube slips out of place.

I check the feeder and guide tube again. Clean extruder.
Print some lines well and re-extrude badly

Thank you very much for any idea

    For the Bowden tube slipping out of the feeder, check that the tube coupling collet (the round item that you push the Bowden into) as all its teeth still so it can grip the bowden.


    If the coupling collet is all fine then cut around 4mm off the end of the Bowden tube, this will mean the coupling collet will now be gripping a fresh part of the Bowden tube as it’s likely that where it gripped before if worn and that’s why the Bowden tube was able to slip free from the feeder.

    Thank you so much for the comments.
    I will take that action as security. When printing starts the tube is perfectly anchored with force and it is difficult to move from its position

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
